Sighting for October 4, 2019

Harvey Tomlinson

My Del Haven Garden
Cape May County, NJ

Good day in the Garden. A Long-tailed Skipper. 2nd for the season, and a Sleepy Orange. The Sleepy stopped on the Senna for awhile…..All the butterflies were nectaring on the Salvia greggii.

[Still more evidence that sleepy orange could be breeding in CMY after many years of being seen there only sporadically. jc]
